“My simple definition of an ‘A’ player is actually someone who can do twice which of a ‘C’ player. ‘A’ players are generally limited to the top 20 percent of a typical team of employees,” the management as well as leadership coach explained, adding which a “B” player is actually someone who “has ‘A’ talent however exhibits some ‘C’ behavior.”
Hallberg said “A” players can be quite profitable to a business, they have self-motivated talent as well as are aware of how crucial the modest, daily tasks are within the workplace — rather than just choosing to turn up for “the big plays.”
“When you have a high-performing team, you can relax as well as provide gentle guidance because your ‘A’ players don’t need you to micro-manage. Instead, they need you to help them unblock obstacles, keep the team at top performance (by enforcing agreed upon performance metrics) as well as make sure everyone is actually thriving within the company culture.”
“They thrive on being part of an elite group which pushes them to grow as well as challenges their abilities to be their very best,” said Hallberg, underlining how surrounding “A” players with different “A” players, can help them push each different to be the best which they can be.
